"Fifty Shades of Grey" star Dakota Johnson recently revealed in an interview with the Daily Star that the butt you see in the film’s classic BDSM spanking scene is not actually her butt. Johnson, 25, opted out of the raunchy scene where co-star Jamie Dornan spanks her bottom. You would think signing up as the leading lady for a BDSM flick the actor would be up for showing and doing anything, but Johnson wasn’t down for the pain.
“There was a close up of a bum getting hit with a belt. That was not my bum, because I didn’t want to get hit with a belt,” Johnson said referring to the scene where Christian whips Ana with a belt.
Johnson is not the only star who opted out of nudity. Here are some celebrities who decided not to show their private parts on the silver screen.
In “Friends with Benefits” Kunis opted for a butt double for her steamy sex scenes with Justin Timberlake. Kunis explained her decision to Ryan Seacrest, “I showed side boob and I figured I can’t just give everything all away at once. I gotta let it all out in little pieces here and there.”
Fisher showed lots of skin in “Wedding Crashers” , but none of it was hers! Fisher used a body double for all her nude scenes.
"I feel like if you have a female comic character and then you see her nipples, then she is no longer funny which is clearly wrong but that was my theory and that's why I didn't want to do it,” the actress said.
For her movie “Wanted”, Jolie was not up for showing her behind so a butt double was needed.
In the movie “Domino”, Knightley’s character did a lap dance. The actress was too self-conscious to perform the dance herself so a body double was requested. Knightley claimed she just wasn’t curvy enough to pull off a lap dance.
In the film, “Your Highness”, Portman’s character wears a thong and dives into a river in one scene. While it was actually Portman’s behind standing in the thong, the subsequent clip of her diving into the water is actually a butt double. Portman said the water was too cold for her to jump into!
